Subject: Missing Content - "S"
Greetings,

Appreciate your posting this. However, the "S" section appears to be missing. Would greatly appreciate some help. Also would appreciate Ogden's other works if available.

Thank you,

Michael

The note that begins this dictionary says:
The General Basic English Dictionary is chiefly for the use of learners of English-for the young who are still making discoveries about their mother-tongue, and even more for those, young and old, who are taking up English as a new language.
and,
From the learner's point of view, one of the commonest ways in which Dictionaries let their readers down is by going round in circles-that is, by giving the sense of a word with the help of another which is itself made clear by going back, sometimes in a roundabout way, to the first.

In this work Ogden overcomes these road blocks to learning English. With six weeks work on the 850 Basic word list and grammar and this book, all of the great treasures of the English tongue are open to the resolute and the adventurous of any mother tongue. This edition is specially suited for those speakers of Japanese who start with the glossary at the back of the book.
